I am planning to install vinyl plank flooring in a large portion of my basement. The planks are 6" wide by 36" long. I plan to use Supreme Click Elite Waterproof Vinyl Plank Battlefield Oak from www.floorstoyourhome.com. What direction should I run the planks? See drawing. I plan to use these planks in the Entry, Recreation Room and Bathroom and Kitchen. There will be carpet in the Family Room and both Bedrooms. This is a basement, so the Entry is not the main entrance to the basement. This is a floating floor with click lock planks. If I run the planks the directions shown on the drawing, do I need to use t-molding where I change directions from the Recreation Room to the Entry? I'm afraid the t-molding will be a "trip molding"! Or, should I run the planks the short direction in the Entry? The direction change to the bathroom will be under a door so I assume a t-molding will be needed there but that doesn't bother me so much because it is a doorway. Thoughts???????
I would run the material in the direction shown in the living area and carry that same run into the entry. Eliminating the need for a tmold. Like u said the entry is not the main area so don't worry about the direction so much and yes u will need a end mold at area where carpet meets other material.
